haunted by a black leather couch

"Sunken" by remember moments

I've got a bit of news - in the new year I will be packing up my apartment and moving in with my sweet and wonderful boyfriend.

What is exciting about this is that he has a great house, some fun art, and is open to redecorating his place (oh, and I enjoy his company - I guess that's a good thing he's got going on too...)
What is not so exciting, you ask? His black leather couch.

Yes, it belonged to his grandfather, is in great shape, and does not necessarily scream 90s bachelor pad, but it still feels like it'll be a challenge to "warm up" and decorate around (with my fondness for the color orange - the living room could easily start to creep into... well... creepiness).

Apartment Therapy has a piece on how to "Decorate Around a Dark Leather Sofa" which gives me hope as do these images where people have actually made the black leather work. All I have to do now is hire one of them... le sigh.

  1. Among various classes, a leather sofa is really what everyone want. This is because it looks grand while being simple. Many find a black leather sofa as the best option. Aside from the fact that leather furniture is a stylish, elegant and cool option, black is a color which goes well with anything.

    Good to know......
